Ish Come Bibble Ahly Boo So Real

Cat. #0124 (MFH #290) - As sung by Mrs. Lula Davis, Fayettville, Arkansas on June 14, 1958

VERSE 1
Well, I wish I was in yonder city
Where all the girls they are so pretty
If I did'nt have a time it would be a pity
Ish come bibble ahly-boo-so-real

CHORUS:
Shule-shule-shule-a-roo
Shule-like-shagrus-spilly-bolly-qule
First time I saw spilly-bolly-eel
Ish come bibble ahly-boo-so-real

VERSE 2
Well I wish I was a married man
And had a wife who's name was Ann
I'd sing her a song on this same plan
Ish come bibble ahly-boo-so-real

VERSE 3
Well, I wish I was on yonders hill
There I'd set and cry my fill
Every drop would turn a mill
Ish come bibble ahly-boo-so-real
